A Boogie wit da Hoodie is a hip-hop rapper who originates from the neighborhood of Highbridge, New York. Real name, Artist Julius Dubose, or also known as just being “A Boogie”, recently only turned 24 years old. A Boogie first gained success and acknowledgement in the the rap game from his debut album, “Artist” in 2016. This album featured many hits like, “Jungle”, “D.T.B.”, & “Still Think About You”. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie created his own type of sound and made his own fan base from it as well. Often rapping about heartbreak, childhood adolescence in his hometown, and future success. “Artist 2.0” is the follow up album to the original album 4 years later and has much to live up to the hype. Back then, “Artist” was never really recognized when it dropped until further time later and I wouldn’t doubt to see it plan out and happen again like that. However most of the time follow up albums flake and don’t match the content of the first. If I were to rate this album I would give it a 8 out of 10 as it is a good album for a sequel. However, this album is a good album on its own and A Boogie brings the same type of heartbreak and pain and payback onto the album that you would expect. He also adds on some features with Roddy Ricch & Gunn, something wasn’t previously done and altered to the originality from the first.
“Numbers (Ft. Roddy Ricch, Gunna, & London on Da Track)” is the third song on the album and is one of the best ones on the album. It has London on Da Track with the strong & very grooving beat that complements all artists within the song. A Boogie sets the tone with that east coast type of hip-hop and his own hint of wanting to progress on from old relationships. Roddy Ricch adds the west coast type of hip-hop and brings on flashy sounds. Gunna brings his slow pounding bar for bar rap style. All artists make use of auto-tune with their own little hint ultimately solidifying this track and setting it up for mere success.
“DTB 4 Life” is the eight track off of “Artist 2.0”. This song is the next version of the original song “D.T.B” from the original album “Artist”. Much like the original version it doesn’t disappoint. I would recommend playing it in the car when you’re in your feelings or getting over a break up or whatever it is. It’s a song jay makes you not wanna look back and move on from the past. Basically, just a good song for you to pour your heart out into and release all your emotions inside.
Artist 2.0, was a highly anticipated album from A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie fans and they’ve been waiting gradually for 4 years for it. It’s not like the first one in the way it sets the things off but it is one that makes a name for itself by itself. If you are a big A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie fan, I would recommend listening to the album and should begin venturing off onto other artists like artists like Lil Mosey, Roddy Ricch & NBA Youngboy. Overall if you loved the first album, “Artist”, then you will definitely enjoy this album. I would recommend you listen to “Artist 2.0” for yourself and pour your emotions out if you’re in feelings or getting over anything.
